"Stewart Island - a small..." New Zealand Off The Beaten Path Tip by judz

New Zealand Off The Beaten Path: 233 reviews and 269 photos


Stewart Island - a small island at the bottom of the South Island and one of the most unspoilt places in NZ. It has a population of around 400 all living in close proximity to the little village of Oban. The main industry is fishing and tourism - most of the locals offering their homes as B&B's There are many walking tracks but many of them are for the more experienced tramper. It takes 10 days to do the complete walk and you need to be fit to do this one.
This is the view taken from the Yankee hut - a 25 bed hut which costs $6 per night.
